Many people have tried traditional approaches to health care and they are now ready for alternatives. Whether you are exploring therapy for the first time or looking for a unique approach, I can provide you with some workable options to finding your own creative solution for problems like anxiety, depression and the pain we all face when loss occurs. Sessions are 1 hour 15 minutes in length so that we have time to center and fully explore the material you bring. Sessions are conducted online via a web conferencing service affording you ease, privacy and attending to your process in the comfort of your home.

An experienced counsellor working mainly online, but also practicing close to Edinburgh City centre. An integrative counsellor, I draw from many disciplines to ensure I can offer counselling of sufficient flexibility to meet your needs. I work with people of all ages. I love working with students, where I have a great deal of success; I have an interest in men's issues and a passion for working with those suffering or surviving abuse (physical; emotional; sexual) or trauma. I work with couples, for which I have specialist qualification, and others in relationships who have lost their way and need help to move ahead.

The first session is the opportunity to hear what brings you to therapy. We will assess the level and the impact the difficulty you are facing has on your life. This will create a baseline that we use later to monitor progress. We will then focus on finding out what would you like to gain from our work together. Often my client knows what they do not want, identifying what they would like to change is harder, and my role is to help you with that. Studies show, that awareness of your needs, is the first crucial step in the process of change.

Anxiety, perfectionism, and self-criticism; this triple combo of hurt can stop us from going after the things we really want in life. We can find ourselves trying to distract ourselves from the uncomfortable fear of failing, opting out of things we want to do out of fear, and getting caught up in thoughts about 'what ifs' and 'maybe' until we feel frozen. Or we might push ourselves to the point of burning out seeking the validation we only find when we achieve something driven by a fear of the day we are not good enough. If your sense of self-worth has become tied to 'doing' rather than simply existing, I may be able to help.

Have you ever asked yourself, "How did I get here?" or "Will I ever feel better?" Maybe something has happened to you recently or in the past. You do your best daily, yet you still feel easily overwhelmed by your thoughts and emotions. Perhaps you struggle to find the 'right' words to talk about it and shut down if others ask how you are. You feel lonely and like nobody understands you. Maybe you tell yourself, "I can't be struggling right now," because you are scared of what may happen if you aren't okay. You are exhausted and want things to change. As someone who's been there personally, I am confident I can support you.

Having the right fit (“therapeutic alliance”) with your psychologist is viewed as the most crucial factor in the healing process. I would encourage you to choose a practitioner with a broad life experience as well as a clinical training in a range of evidence-based psychological therapies. A former lawyer, I practised human rights & social justice law for years in the courts in the UK. This led to my interest in psychology & trauma & therapies to overcome psychological difficulties. I’ve lived in Canada, France, Italy & Scotland and have travelled all over the world, so I hope to have a background which may help you.

It is a courageous step to reach out to a therapist and, in recognition of this, I have wholeheartedly devoted 30 years of my life to helping people create real and lasting change. I have completed a vast amount of psychological training and am guided by extensive experience in really hearing the parts of my clients’ experience which are keeping them ‘stuck’ or are barriers to happiness. I help people to understand crucial scientific findings about how the brain affects our happiness and I use the most effective techniques to help clients become liberated from unhelpful repetitive behaviours or thought patterns.

People seek therapy & counselling for different reasons & you will have your own unique life experiences that may cause you unhappiness or you may find yourself at crisis point feeling unsure of what to do next. I have worked with many different clients from across the social & cultural spectrum from medical professionals to artists, full-time students to stay at home parents & retirees. I understand that often it is the first step, no matter who we are, that can feel the hardest; the reaching out & making contact. You may want to explore options for change, make sense of a difficult experience or gain new strategies for coping.

You may know exactly what you want from counselling or it may just be a feeling that something isn't right. It might be issues arising from the past or events that are affecting you right now - whatever it is, I believe talking about it can make a real difference. Counselling can feel quite daunting at times and I will be there to listen with warmth and empathy; to be alongside you when there are tough times and to laugh with you when life feels a little lighter. Working together, we can explore what's bothering you and perhaps look at other ways of coping with life so you can move forward with confidence and optimism.

Trauma can include life-threatening events or simply moments where you were overwhelmed and felt helpless. A troubling or terrifying event has an impact on the whole person – it is held in the body, changes ways of thinking, and often comes with an overwhelming set of emotional and behavioural responses. At times, these changes and responses are unhelpful and seriously affect people’s quality of life and their ability to move forward. Working together, we explore and come to understand your current responses. We identify tools that you can use to rebuild your life in a way that works for you.

If you are reading this now, it means you are going through one of life’s challenges…and you may need more support.I get that it’s not easy to admit to vulnerability.I offer my companionship on the journey of discovery, healing and growth. Through 'experiential learning' and 'dialogue' we’ll expand your awareness of ‘how’ you are in relationships. We will look at where you feel 'stuck' and what’s 'difficult'; we will 'stay with' the feelings and complexity that may unfold. I believe change happens organically when we have enough 'support' and fully acknowledge the situation we are in.If that resonates with you, please contact me.

It can feel like life is spiralling out of control at times. Like there is a cloud over everything you think and do. You may not feel ‘yourself’ or even know who that is. You may not feel anything at all. And you might not know why… I offer you a safe space to explore some of these experiences on your own terms. In counselling, you are in control. You are the expert on your life. I am here to help facilitate your process through deep understanding and empathy, without blame or judgement.

Life is a series of changes, often bringing loss and pain but also the seeds of a positive transformation. Even if you're unsure how to move forward, a theme can emerge. Counselling can facilitate a new understanding of ourselves, our different relationships, our place in the world. By reassessing hopes and fears, we can work towards the difference we want to experience. Alongside general counselling, I have specialist experience in post-natal depression and traumatic emotional and sexual abuse. My approach, however, is to treat every person without presumptions, trusting the space that opens up and finding the best way for you.
